Scholastic Books Complaints & Reviews

Scholastic BooksDidnt order but Im getting charged!

I keep getting charges on my credit card from Scholastic Books. I never ordered these yet I get charged. What am I getting charged for? I have read the other complaints but I am not recieving any packages, I am just getting charged for nothing. $18.89 a month I am fed up! I keep calling them and they are very rude and they hang up on you alot. If they do talk to me they claim that they cancel this subscription but I continue to recieve these charges. I dont have a job and I cant afford this crap! If you are looking to purchase something from this company, THINK AGAIN!!! THEY ARE SCAMMERS!

    Scholastic BooksBooks scam!

    Books and an invoice were sent to me that were never ordered. These are children's books, and we have no children in our home. I have called the company, and they tell me I ordered online, but will not give me any verification of this.

    The Standard Operating Procedure for this company is apparently to send books and count on a certain percentage will pay the bill.

    The rep with my first call to the company told me I must go to the post office and refuse the shipment so that it can be returned. It cost me over an hour of my time, plus travel to the nearest post office, to learn I could not do that because I had opened the small invoice envelope on the outside of the box.

    The second rep on my next call to Scholastic was extremely rude and told me I ordered these children's books on line. She would send me a mailing label to return them. When I asked to speak to a supervisor on this because I was tired of having so much time on this scheme, she hung up on me.

    My advise to anyone getting a package from this company: don't even touch it! Refuse delivery immediately. If you do open anything, you will end up spending much time and great frustration in trying to get this company to undo their operation.

        Happened to me too. I opened the box, opened the invoice and almost did the same thing you did before coming to my senses... I thought - hey wait a sec... if I spend money trying to send it back, what's to stop them from sending it to me again?

        I didn't even bother calling up their support number. Gave away the books to a friend and tossed out the invoice. Scholastic wont get a freakin penny outta me!

        You are not alone! Just like you, I also fell victim. I already posted a similar problem at this site.

        Scholastic books calls me several times a day. On 03/17/08 I asked them not to call anymore. On 03/18/08 I received two more phone calls from them.
